Wednesday, 18 March 1863

Awful storms of hail, rain, thunder, lightning, wind ― all night long. So I slept little ― & that little after 5. At all.

Monday’s steamer came in at 9.

Weather a little clear: went to Taylors, to get money ― & pay his bill &c. &c.

Returned at 10 ― & worked at the Black & White drawings off & on. At 2. P.M., put all by ― to begin, tomorrow,  ― to finish in oil.

Several officers of the 6th came: ― all very pleasant nice fellows. Later ― the Chev. Colquhoun & Mrs. C.

At 5.30 ― walked the long round: ―― not unhappily.

At 7.15 ― dined on complex curry ― but excellent ―.

Penned out 1856 drawings till 11. G. went to Καστράδες & returned by 10.30. ―

Εὐτυχαὶ ἡμέραι εἶναι αὐταί.[1]

[1] These are happy days (NB).
